LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars need a total overhaul

todayJanuary 4, 2022

Background

Parity does work in the NFL. Look at this year’s playoff race. Very little is settled about the playoff schedule going into an historic 18th week.

That makes the plight of the Jaguars are the more unimageable.

3-29. Almost impossible. Worse, the Jaguars are going downhill. Except for an unexplainable 2017 season, the Jaguars have spent a decade mired in the cellar — AND there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.

This isn’t a team that needs one of these and a couple of those. It needs a total rebuild. OK, let’s keep quarterback Trevor Lawrence and hope he isn’t shell shocked. Punter Logan Cooke is a keeper.

It needs a complete makeover of the front office, and that includes scouting. It needs a new defense. It needs a new offense.

Where it once looked like an ideal spot for a new coach, now it’ll be a crapshoot to find the right coach. While NFL jobs are few, Jacksonville has become the place where head coaching careers go to die..

The Jaguars faithful has put up with a ton of on-field futility in your decade of ownership. But you’ve always seemed to care about winning. You spend on free […]

LAMM AT LARGE: PGA pros may be TOO good

The PGA Tour's slogan, "These Guys Are Good", is outdated. It should be "These Guys Are Great". After three tournaments this year the winners are a combined 80 under par. At the same point last year that total was 69; the year before that 51. The courses admittedly are easy […]
